I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we can all say one (or more) thing we feel really thankful or blessed to have in our lives.

Let me be clear, I am in no way saying life is amazing and wonderful. I have huge problems with forced positivity and find it to be very damaging. You are allowed negativity. I myself am dealing with a crock of problems so large right now it sometimes seems insurmountable. But I think no matter how bad life is, everyone can find at least one thing they are glad to have in their life.

So I'll start:

I am so grateful and blessed to have such a wonderful husband in my life. Before I met him I had many bad experiences and was deeply mistrustful of men. Even now, I have many friends who've had boyfriends and husbands too awful to be believed.

So I am so incredibly blessed to be in a partnership with this man who made me believe in men again. Thanks to him, I have met many wonderful men and have many male friends who I trust and love.

Furthermore, he's incredibly supportive and never complains (even when he has a right too) about how difficult it is taking care of me. He sees me as more than a collection of illnesses and loves me deeply. I, of course, feel the same way for him.

This is just one of the people in my life who makes me feel lucky to be alive and keeps me going on a daily basis.

What are you grateful for? Confidence you have now you didn't when you were younger? A partner in life or in friendship? A cup of tea? Your pets? Can't wait to hear from you all!

I am grateful for the people in my life. My family. Without them, life would be dull.

May be a cop out, but I am grateful for my 2 sons. They have given me the will to continue living after losing my husband to brain cancer. To see the incredible adults that they are makes me smile and beam with pride.

To many to say, but on Aug 04, 2016 @ 09:16 am

I'm most grateful that our two son's 23 & 20 managed to grow into the fine young men that they both are today and they didn't end up getting into trouble landing in jail, or living out on the streets! They respect other's especially women, they're responsible, they're always willing to help other's whether they know them or not, they appreciate the things they have in their life's no matter how big, or how small those things maybe. They both work hard at their jobs and never complain about it and they're even thankful for the things we were unable to give them while they were growing up.

Love this topic, it's always nice to focus on the positive.

I am so blessed to have some amazing people in my life. My family is so caring and I have such a great relationship with them, my boyfriend is the most supportive, generous, and trustworthy person I know, and I have some amazing friends who I am so lucky to have in my life and make me smile when I need it most.
